National Bestseller

One of Newfoundland''s funniest and most beloved storytellers offers his cure for the Covid blues.


Is there a more sociable province than Newfoundland and Labrador? Or anywhere in Canada with a greater reputation for coming to the rescue of those in need?

At this time of Covid, singer, songwriter and bestselling author Alan Doyle is feeling everyone''s pain. Off the road and spending more days at home than he has since he was a child hawking cod tongues on the wharfs of Petty Harbour, he misses the crowds and companionship of performing across the country and beyond.

We''re all experiencing our own version of that deprivation, and Alan, one of Newfoundland''s finest storytellers, wants to offer a little balm.

ALAN DOYLE is a Canadian musician, actor and writer. His albums as a solo artist and as front man for the Newfoundland Celtic-rock band Great Big Sea have sold over a million copies, and he has starred in such features as Ridley Scott''s Robin Hood and CBC''s Republic of Doyle. He has written two books, Where I Belong, published in 201...
